MA – School Lunch Hero Day Workshop + Signing

Cartoonist Jarrett J. Krosoczka appears at the Public Library of Brookline on Thursday, February 15th at 3:30 PM.

In the world of Jarrett J. Krosoczka, school nutrition professionals are superheroes. In the author/illustrator’s award-winning Lunch Lady graphic novel series, three curious students discover the crime-fighting ways of their heroic lunch lady and team up to keep the school safe from cyborg substitutes, conniving photographers, and mutant mathletes. Hear Jarrett share his favorite stories about real-life school lunch heroes and discuss School Lunch Hero Day, a celebration honoring the hard work, dedication, and kindness of school nutrition staff who help shape the lives of millions of students every day.

This visit will also include a workshop on how to create your own graphic novel. How do you organize visual ideas in a clear manner to tell a story? What’s the difference between a word balloon and a thought balloon? What’s a gutter and a panel? The graphic novel format will be broken down and students will gain a deeper understanding of storytelling through comics! Jarrett will also give great tips to avoid the pitfalls that young cartoonists often fall into. (Hint: Write the words before you draw the word balloon…) Paper and pencil will be provided for each participant.

This event is limited to 75 participants (with chaperones additional.) Please have at least one chaperone per two children.

The Children’s Book Shop will be selling titles and there will be a book signing after the workshop has finished.

Part of the Brookline Eats! series.

Supported by a grant from the Brookline Community Foundation. Generously sponsored by the Friends of the Brookline Library.
